  56. 2020 Friday: Thanks to the persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by out-of-control leftist Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, we have learned that the main sub-source for the so-called (Christopher) Steele Dossier is Ukrainian born Igor “Iggy” Danchenko, a foreign national investigated by the FBI from 2009 to 2011.  Apparently, he was ‘flipped’ by the Obama administration and would become a major player in the fabrication of the bogus dossier used by the Hillary 2016 presidential campaign and Democrats to destroy then-candidate and now-president Donald J. Trump.   We also have learned- thanks again to Judge Sullivan- that several FBI agents involved in SPYING on Trump and his campaign, White House, and cabinet officials understood the investigation to be extremely flawed and took out personal liability insurance to protect them when the proverbial s**t hit the fan.  The longer Democrat players fail to step forward and begin ‘fessing up,’ the worse we hope things will be for them when the American people know everything.  Meanwhile, the president continues to call what the Democrats have tried to do to him a ‘coup’ which is how a majority of Americans see it.  He also questions ‘WHY the wife of the Moscow, Russia, mayor gave Hunter Biden $3.5 million a short time ago.’  What is up with Hunter?
  57. 2020 Friday A: In Louisville, Kentucky, this morning- following a night of rioting by Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other human scum- well-known attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump does his best to stir up still more violence and to help him do this, he has brought Jacob Blake Sr., father of the thug shot and crippled in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to the smoldering city.  Mr. Crump demands ALL grand jury information be made available to the public, including the names of the grand jurors and witnesses.  He wants to know if Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, testified at the proceedings.  Why don’t you ask him, sir?   A recent Fox News Channel poll shows that 44-percent of the American people disapprove of the mob violence across the nation, up from the thirties a month or two ago.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order that will send $500 billion to black communities across the country.  The order also calls Antifa and the Ku Klux Klan as terrorist groups.
  58. 2020 Friday B: President Trump is on the campaign trail today with stops in Florida where he attended a roundtable for Latinos event and says he ‘has done more for Latinos than any other president’ which is true.  He plans to hold a rally in Virginia with the Governor Ralph Northam and his wife NOW test positive for the Wuhan Xi Jinping Chinese Bat Flu Virus leading the state government scrambling for ways to prevent the campaign rally.  We know it will become a ‘protest’ which will legitimize the event and stifle the critics.  Meanwhile, popular Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signs an order lifting all remaining COVID-19 restrictions.  Florida is now open for business once more. Elsewhere, former Congressman Ron Paul, father of Senator Rand Paul, entered a hospital in Texas for precautionary reasons.  We hope you are okay.
  59. 2020 Friday C: PAC 12 announces it will play an abbreviated schedule of seven games beginning in November.  Congratulations for coming back!  All major conferences will now be playing or are playing.   President Trump concluded an event- a ‘protest’ if you will- in Georgia and now is on the way to Virginia where he will conduct another ‘protest’ in lieu of being able to hold a political rally.  Elsewhere, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi when asked if she is going to impeach President Trump again, she nixed that idea what with the election looming in the near future.  She does, however, threaten that the House is going to pass a bill that will limit HOW many SCOTUS nominees a president can nominate and how long they can serve once confirmed.  Since the Democrats have been threatening to stack the courts, we think the president should nominate another seven- instead of one- and get them jump-started in what they now swear to do should “Pro-China Joe” Biden win on November 3.
  60. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 32,356,829 confirmed cases, +317,687, 984,590, confirmed deaths, +5,202, and 22,278,696 confirmed recoveries, +254,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,099,967 confirmed cases, up 53,170 from yesterday’s reporting, 206,592 confirmed deaths, UP 978, and 3,817,235 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,490.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 801,845 confirmed cases, 15,398 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,908 confirmed cases, 124 confirmed deaths, and 5,265 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 88,607 confirmed cases, 2,175 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 215,273 confirmed cases, 1,405 confirmed deaths, and 152,837 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 758,646 confirmed cases, 15,595 confirmed deaths, and 642,149 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Greg Abbott, for sharing ALL the numbers.
  61. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,173.96, UP 358.32 points (+1.34%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,913.56, UP 241.30 points (+2.26%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,298.46, UP 51.87 points (+1.60%).  Price of GOLD: $1,864.30 per troy oz., -2.00 (-0.11%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $22.98 per troy oz., -0.108 (-0.47%).  Price of PLATINUM: $841.60 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.05%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,222.20 per troy oz., -4.70 (-0.21%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.98 per #, +0.007 (+0.24%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.04, -0.21 (-0.52%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.82 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.80 Afghan afghani.
  62. 2020 Friday F: NO one knows what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party flunkies are up to on any given day so please stick around and we’ll find out together.
